It's supposedly very good. I've played Shogun and enjoyed it very much. Check out game-review sites, and you'll get a good answer.

If I want to find out whether or not a game is worth buying, I try to lend it from a video store for a weekend. Then you also know whether or not it runs on your machine, because that´s something you can never be sure of these days.

Man, I´m a fan of the "Total War" series, I mastered the Shogun in all levels, mongol expansion included.

I think that if you have a good video card, is astonishing, but I think, and that´s my opinion, that the total war series are very SERIOUS games, historicaly accurate, cruel, plenty of blood, and you need to know about ancient strategic of battles, not only "send the guys to die".

I had many times a chilling feeling in my shoulder playing, sendind my troops to die, and this game gives you a close perspective about the horror of war. Man, I´m talking very serious, in terms of strategy, this game separate kids from men.

I know many, many friends and people that watched playing me this game, and I encouraged to play too.
Nobody has the guts.

My recomendation: go and buy it, right now. Don´t wait more time.


Ah, a good feature of this game, if you don´t like, as me, to administrate the economy, you can put it in "automatic", and you can play only the role of commmander of your faction.

GO AND BUY IT, strenght and honor!!!

Do you know "Preatorians" as well, Kensai? And if you do, what´s your opinion of that one? From what I´ve seen, it looks pretty similar to Rome -Total War, and it´s the cheaper of the two Wink

I liked the first cossacks that was good, but I will never forget the first time I plyed it. I just finished building up my army, I thought I would beable to destroy the other team with my huge force.

I rode into town and was slaughtered by a few artillery pieces

I don´t know a certain page, I´ve just seen the game in stores and it looks rather similar, though more battle-based than R-TW, which I´ve got me this weekend. It´s really great, but I have yet to figure out the difference etween acarde and realistic battle mode, so far, it doesn´t seem to be much in the way of a difference.
The attles are really fun, especially large ones, with oth sides havn the maximum of units. Now, that is how battles have to look Thumbs Up
